Located in downtown Toronto, the largest and most culturally diverse city in Canada, and on the territory of the Anishinaabeg, Haudenosaunee, the Mississaugas of the Credit and the Wendat Peoples, the School of Performance in The Creative School at Toronto Metropolitan University [TMU] (formerly Ryerson University) invites applications from candidates who self-identify as Black peoples of African Descent (e.g, Africans and African heritage people from the Caribbean, Americas, Europe), for a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Black Expressive Culture and Creativity in the Diaspora. Upon successful nomination to the CRC program, the candidate will be appointed to a tenure track position at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor, effective January 1, 2024, subject to final budgetary approval.
In collaboration with Toronto Metropolitan University, the successful candidate will develop the CRC nomination for the April 18, 2023 deadline. The CRC Tier 2 appointment is tenable for five years and renewable once. All nominations are subject to review and final approval by the CRC Secretariat. Further details on the CRC eligibility criteria can be found here.
TMU is committed to addressing the underrepresentation of Black faculty as outlined in the Anti-Black Racism Campus Climate Review Report, and invites applications from Black scholars who will enrich the work of the School of Performance by bringing community connections and diverse perspectives, knowledges and lived experiences to teaching, scholarly research and creative activities, and service.
The successful candidate will be a self-identifying Black artist-scholar whose research creation program actively promotes the study and practice of Black diasporic expressive culture and creativity in Canada and, as defined by the CRC program guidelines, is an “exceptional emerging researcher acknowledged by their peers as having the potential to lead in their field.” The successful candidate will be an outstanding emerging artist-scholar who has achieved public and academic recognition for their program of research creation, which engages in expansive, transdisciplinary examinations of Black diasporic expressive cultures and creativity as crucial forms of agency and art-activist expression in Canada. The candidate’s artistic and scholarly profile will meet the criteria of the CRC program and demonstrate an excellent fit with institutional strategic goals, building on existing university strengths in Black community-engaged scholarship.
